Size distribution of colonies

Posted by GSondhi on 24 Aug 2009 at 19:11 GMT

Is there any research that supports the normal distribution of colony sizes in yeast? From my experience in E. coli, the size distribution does not seem to follow this rule. There is always more small colonies than larger ones, but E. coli and yeast colonies may not behave the same.
